Mosier Oil Train Wreck Anniversary 6/3/2017
Mosier Community School

WHAT: Join us on Saturday, June 3, 2017 to mark the one-year anniversary of the frightening, nearly catastrophic oil train derailment, spill, and fire in Mosier, Oregon. We will gather in Mosier to make a statement against additional oil trains coming through the Columbia River Gorge.

WHERE: Mosier Community School. 1204 Historic Columbia River Highway

WHEN: Saturday, June 3, 2017, at 12:00 noon

DETAILS: What to bring? Bring yourself and friends, a snack, a hat, and good walking shoes.

Portland Metro Area Carpool: Call, text, email (goto350pdx@gmail.com) 503-705-1943 by NOON on Friday, June 2nd.

WHY: One year after the derailment, contamination persists in Mosier's groundwater. Meanwhile, oil and railroad companies are seeking to expand oil and coal train traffic through the Columbia River Gorge, despite opposition from Columbia River Tribes, the town of Mosier, and many larger cities along the potential route. The cities of Portland and Vancouver even passed new local laws banning oil train terminals, citing Mosier's experience.

In coming months, Washington’s Governor Inslee will make a final decision about whether to deny the Tesoro Savage oil train terminal in Vancouver, a project that would bring up to five loaded oil trains each day through the Columbia River Gorge. Mosier’s oil train fire should be all the evidence that Governor Inslee needs to deny the oil train terminal. On June 3rd, we will gather to remind Governor Inslee and other leaders to heed warnings from Mosier, tribal communities threatened by oil trains, and cities like Vancouver, Spokane, and Portland - all of whom are standing up to oil trains.
